Mitt Romney, routinely dismissed as a bit stiff and humorless on the stump, is suddenly cracking up his campaign trail crowds.
Joe the Plumber is back on the presidential campaign trail — at least in spirit, thanks to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney's newly minted running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan.
Making his first public appearance since his rape comments ignited a political firestorm, Republican congressman Todd Akin insisted once again that he won't bow out of his U.S. Senate race despite pleas from his Republican colleagues.
That didn't take long. President Obama's campaign manager just blasted out a fundraising email hours after Mitt Romney fumbled his way into the "birther" controversy while touting his local roots at a campaign stop in Michigan.
GOP challenger Mitt Romney waded into conspiracy theories surrounding President Obama's birthplace with a one-liner on Friday, telling the thousands at a campaign stop in the Detroit suburbs that there is no reason for them to question where Mr. Romney or his wife were born and raised.
After releasing his first television ad of his U.S. Senate campaign in Virginia earlier this week, Democrat Tim Kaine unveiled an all-Spanish television ad Friday as part of a $250,000 buy of Spanish-language radio and television ads that will run from now until election day.
Rep. Todd Akin's disastrous rape comment doesn't initially appear to have damaged Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in Missouri, where a new poll shows him leading President Obama by 10 points.
The price tag of President Obama's stimulus ticked up slightly, to $833 billion, according to the latest report Thursday from the Congressional Budget Office.
The 2012 Virginia Senate race has been within the margin of error for virtually the entire campaign, but Republican George Allen now has literally drawn even with Democrat Tim Kaine in a new poll from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling after narrowly trailing in the firm's previous five polls.
Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican and the ranking GOP member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, wants answers about whether Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and other senior Justice Department officials misused FBI aircraft, hindering the agency's investigations and ignoring a White House order to cut travel costs.
Missouri Rep. W. Todd Akin has plummeted in a new poll, falling 10 points behind Sen. Claire McCaskill in a survey taken after he made controversial comments about rape.
The Obama campaign announced Thursday that it will soon allow supporters to donate by mobile phone, making it the first campaign ever to do so.
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has made no secret of his distaste for President Obama's health care law, repeatedly vowing to give states an immediate waiver from it should he win election and to work to repeal the entire law.
Incumbent Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown leads his Republican challenger by 7 percentage points in the hotly contested Ohio Senate race, a new poll released Thursday shows.
Nearly two-thirds of Florida, Ohio and Wisconsin voters prefer the current Medicare system over a proposed privatized voucher system supported by Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential candidate, according to a poll released Thursday.
